Beavers and Peraica on Fox News Chicago

This morning Cook County Commissioners Tony Peraica and William Beavers were on Fox News Chicago. There was a lot of arguing on both sides. Bill Beavers accused many Cook County Commissioners for trying to get publicity because they are running for other offices, including Tony Peraica for State's Attorney, Forrest Claypool and Mike Quigley for Cook County President and Roberto Maldonado for Congress.
Bill Beavers went on to say that Todd Stroger talks too much and he has told him about it. And with all his spokespeople, including Bill Beavers? Bill Beavers went on to say he had talk Dr. Simon to stay off camera because he does not have good public relation skills. And I wonder after multiple requests for Dr. Simon to have the appropriate people at the Cook County Board meetings, why does he not do it? And why does he insist on trying to answer all of these Health Bureau questions? Bill Beavers also said that Peraica, Claypool, Maldonado, Quigley and all the others that were on the Board when all of these budget shortfalls fell into Todd Strogers presidency were from them. Tony Peraica said it was his father John Stroger's fault.
Tony Peraica said that there is a Democratic majority on the board and Todd Stroger had to rely on 3 Republicans to vote on his budget to pass. Tony Peraica went on to say that his fellow Republicans on the Board were not doing their job.

    Sounds like the Fox Comedy show today. And they both had to go on Fox? Is there another news station that they can go? It is a shae that no one wanted to vote a "no conference vote" for Urkel. Nothing will change unless the people want change. Urkel may be a Democrat on paper and from the outside but Urkel has the GOP personality through and through.

    The Cook County Board is the most entertaining and upsetting thing in this city. Everyone is trying to boost ratings by having them on their show.

    Yep. I'm not in Cook County but I just surprised some people who do live there that I knew about the Toddler. I was told that anyone complaining about the Toddler gets accused of racism by his supporters, too. Nope. The dude could be yellow and purple stripes; he would still be a sleezebucket. Better yet, everybody complaining should just make comparisons between the Toddler and Governor Licenses for Bribes Ryan, or Sorich, or Rezko, or Postcard Dude. Corruption in Illinois is an equal opportunity 'employer', White or Black, Democrat or Republican, groups do not matter. I don't know when someone declared open season on stealing the taxpayers' money but it's about damn time those hunting permits got revoked.

    "I was told that anyone complaining about the Toddler gets accused of racism by his supporters, too."

    You got to be kidding me, here. Accused of racism? Who in the hell is that guy? Is he playing the race card issue? Give me a break.

    "Corruption in Illinois is an equal opportunity 'employer', White or Black, Democrat or Republican, groups do not matter."

    Best statement of the blog...

    That's something I should have seen. Too bad I missed it. It certainly would have been entertaining.

    What would our pols do in line?

    By Steve Rhodes

    The New York Times recently reported on a focus group (whose members were) asked how they thought each of the presidential candidates would respond to being stuck in a line at the airport. Here a few answers that have floated in, placing Illinois figures in the same situation.

    Daley: Would say, "What line? I don't see a line," as he cut to the front.

    Obama: Would try to inspire the line to move faster.

    Emil Jones: Would take ComEd's private jet.

    Todd Stroger: Would hire his cousin as spokesman to try to talk the people in the line into liking him.

    Oprah: Would buy airplanes for everyone in line.

    Lou Piniella: Would rearrange the line over and over but get the same result.

    Rod Blagojevich: "This flight goes to Springfield? I'm in the wrong line!"

    County to move some immigrant patients

    Cook County will pay private nursing homes to care for undocumented immigrants who are currently staying at county-owned Oak Forest Hospital under contracts advanced Monday by a committee of the County Board.

    County commissioners voted 9-3 to approve two three-year contracts totaling $18.8 million to outsource long-term and intermediate care for those patients. The county receives no state or federal reimbursements for them.

    Despite the cost, officials estimate the move will save the county about $10 million a year as part of a significant restructuring in the Bureau of Health Services under board President Todd Stroger's budget that was approved earlier this year.

    The entire Justice League bloggers are packing up and moving to Chicago for their healthcare!!!This makes no sense!!
